FC Barcelona's Ansu Fati has been awarded the LaLiga Santander Player of the Month award for September, beating off competition from fellow nominees Mikel Merino, Iago Aspas, Sergio Canales, José Luis Morales, Luis Suárez and Luis Milla in a public vote on the EA Sports website.
The youngster burst onto the scene last term in stunning fashion to become one of the stars of the 2019/20 LaLiga Santander season and the now Spain international's dazzling displays so far this campaign are confirming that early promise.
The Catalans recorded two wins last month, putting Villarreal CF to the sword in a 4-0 triumph, before registering a 3-0 away success over RC Celta, with Fati catching the eye in both games. He bagged a brace and earned a penalty within the space of a few first-half minutes against the Castellon outfit as his magic set Barcelona well on the way to victory. Meanwhile, in his second appearance of the month, against Celta, he again broke the deadlock with a sensational strike as his self-confidence, ability to get past his man and electric pace continue to earn him a place in the hearts of the Azulgranas' faithful.
